  3. Establishing a compensation mechanism
  4. Creating interconnection processes, standards, and codes

This webinar was Part 2 of a two-part series. It will explore building blocks 4 and 5 with an emphasis on finance and business models. The first webinar explored building blocks 1 through 3.

The purpose of the webinar series was to provide policymakers, utilities, and other energy practitioners in the developing world a foundational, concise guide and best practices for establishing a distributed PV program in their countries. The presenters were Alexandra Aznar, Sherry Stout and Jason Coughlin.

The webinar presentations were followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
